long we have used politics and the second amendment to cover up our lack of action. yes, the supreme court affirmed we have a right to bear arms, but in that same ruling the court made clear that right is not unlimited. we do not, as justice scalia put it, have an unlimited right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever for whatever purpose. our individual right to bear arms is limited by a right among others to keep our children safe. any of those children could have been one of ours and for 20 parents, it was. we may not be able to stop every crime, we know that no single law or set of laws can prevent every act of senseless violence in our society, but we have the ability and the no-how to prevent many of them. we must simply find the courage. we can no longer be bystanders to injustice. we cannot continue to look on and do nothing. as shakespeare said, the fault lies not within our stars but in ourselves. we must act. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from washington, mr. mcdermott, f

to take action. i think in my prosecutors office there is hard and soft power. the hard power in a prosecutor's office, in a police department, it's arresting. it's putting in jail. it's going in court and find this person guilty and punish them. that's a kind of hard power and most of what is done in a prosecutor's office -- most of the resources are devoted to those hard power tasks, but although we devote less resources to soft power there are probably more important and soft power is where you change the hearts and minds of people. where you try to change cultures, try to change the norms in the community are and certainly in our office we devote significant resources to this. just a couple of examples. we have something called the parent project, and i am very grateful in a time of really reduced funding our board of supervisors stepped up and provided funding for otherwise what was run on a shoe string out of our office, and it's a program that teaches parents to be better parents and parents get referred this program through schools, through police department, thr
